You can watch Lewis Dunk chest the ball back to Robert Sanchez against Leeds as many times as you want on replays.

But you will only ever see it for the first time once.

The Albion skipper’s nonchalant piece of skill, awareness, composure and confidence was the most eye-catching moment of his command performance against Leeds.

But the best things about that moment was the surprise element – the wow factor.

And that can only be fully experienced on the first viewing.

(All that also goes for Danny Welbeck’s first touch when he scored his team’s second goal).

Was Dunk’s display against Leeds his best since Graham Potter took over in charge?

The Albion head coach suggested that was the case after seeing his skipper lead the team to a 2-0 win.

The usually dangerous Leeds side never really threatened Robert Sanchez – and Dunk was a huge part in that.

Albion have now kept three successive clean sheets at the Amex and four in the last six games, home and away.

Argus readers voted Dunk their man of the match.



Potter said: “I thought his performance was sensational.

“I haven’t seen him play as well as that but his performances have consistently been at such a high level.

“He has been fantastic for us.

“You look at the clean sheets. I’m not saying it has just been to Lewis.

“I’m sure he will say the same.

“But he has contributed in terms of how he led that line.

“He has been fantastic for us and today he was amazing.”
